Top 5 Benefits of Buying Bulk Cleaning Supplies
In this post:
- Why bulk cleaning supplies make good business sense
- Surprising benefits of bulk supplies
- Bulk supplies' role in your facility maintenance plan
1. Bulk Supplies = Money Savings
When you buy in bulk, you’re purchasing products at wholesale prices, which naturally reduces operational costs. For example, a single bottle of hand soap may cost $5 in a retail store, but when you buy in bulk, a box of 40 of the same hand soap is priced at $120, equivalent to $3 per bottle. Let’s say you go through a box of 40 hand soaps every six months. The $2 difference in price per bottle leads to a cost-saving of $160 every year.
When you consider all the types of cleaning supplies you regularly use, such as floor and carpet cleaners, disinfectants, window cleaner, multi-purpose cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners, and bathroom cleaners, you could be looking at hundreds and even thousands of dollars saved.
2. Buying Bulk Supplies Saves Time
Buying cleaning supplies in bulk not only saves money, but it will save you and your cleaning staff time from needing to purchase supplies every month. As you build a solid list of supplies that you purchase consistently, review the supplies you've been using on a regular basis, and consider our autoship program for easier reordering and even greater savings.
3. You’re Equipped to Handle Any Cleaning Emergency
Accidents happen, and a scenario where a customer or employee spills a large amount of liquid or other material is not uncommon. The last thing you want is not to have enough cleaning material or supplies to take care of the mess, especially if your business experiences heavy foot traffic or if the mess is in the building’s main area.
Having your industrial cleaning supply well-stocked ensures that your business is equipped to handle any situation, from an illness outbreak to maintaining a routine cleaning and a deep cleaning schedule.
4. Buying in Bulk Helps with Budgeting & Inventory Management
Your cleaning staff will have a good handle on how much product they go through each month, which will allow for easier budgeting and reordering. Staff will be able to anticipate when a new order will need to be made and where further costs can be reduced.
5. Bulk Purchasing Reduces Environmental Impact
When you purchase your cleaning supplies in bulk, your business is doing its part to contribute to sustainable environmental practices. Bulk cleaning supplies use less packaging, and with fewer materials used, you’re helping manufacturers and suppliers save on energy, fuel, transportation, and other operational costs.
It’s easy to see why buying industrial cleaning and facility supplies in bulk is beneficial for businesses across all industries. Cleaning supplies purchased in bulk for your business will help your facility maintain a standard of cleanliness, plus you'll enjoy all of the benefits listed above.
